Description

  The present invention relates to an automatic teller machine, and more particularly to an automatic teller machine that displays a transaction content on a screen with a viewing angle limited according to ambient illuminance.

  In the past, automated teller machines such as ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) and CDs (Cash Dispenser) have been used at banks (post offices, credit unions, etc.). An apparatus is installed, and various transactions (financial transactions) can be performed by a user operating an automatic teller machine. The automatic teller machine includes, for example, a passbook entry / exit part, a card entry / exit part, a bill entry / exit part, a coin entry / exit part, a touch panel (input device and display device) and the like for normal operation. On the screen of the touch panel, operation buttons for specifying transaction details (transaction amount and the like) are displayed, and the specified transaction amount and the like are displayed. Transactions include deposits, withdrawals, transfers, transfers, balance inquiries, etc. related to accounts. When performing such a transaction, for example, the user performs an operation of inputting an account number, a transfer amount, or the like, or an operation of inputting a password for user authentication.

  In many cases, a dedicated booth of each financial institution has a plurality of automatic teller machines arranged side by side so that a plurality of users can use them simultaneously. In this case, there is a possibility that information input by a certain user may be peeped by a third party who operates an adjacent automatic teller machine. Moreover, even when only one cash automatic transaction apparatus is installed in the dedicated booth, information input by a certain user may be peeped by a third party from the side. Furthermore, even if the third party is not malicious, the user's operation screen may enter the third party's field of view. Therefore, in a dedicated booth, a floor-to-ceiling partition may be installed between a plurality of automatic teller machines, or simple partitions may be retrofitted on both sides of the main body of the automatic teller machine. There are also cases where security devices such as surveillance cameras are installed in dedicated booths. In order to prepare such facilities, each financial institution bears a great cost. On the other hand, in order to prevent peeping easily at low cost without arranging such equipment or using it in combination, the viewing angle should be set so that it is visible to the user himself and not visible to the third party. A technique for displaying information on a screen with a restriction within a predetermined range is known (for example, see Patent Document 1).

  The technique described in Patent Document 1 is to attach a peep prevention film to a liquid crystal display. In addition to the method of attaching a peep prevention film to a liquid crystal display, a liquid crystal panel with a viewing angle restriction in which the liquid crystal display itself has a function of restricting the viewing angle within a predetermined range is also known.

In the anti-peep filter described in Patent Document 1, the anti-glare layer is configured by integrating a plurality of transparent silicone rubber sheets and colored silicone rubber sheets that are alternately stacked in the horizontal direction so as to sandwich the anti-glare layer. A total of three sheets are laminated on the top and bottom. When this peep prevention filter is adhered to the liquid crystal display and information is displayed on the liquid crystal display, the display information can be grasped by looking at the screen from the front (0 °) of the liquid crystal display. When viewed from the direction of 45 °, the screen looks black and the display information cannot be grasped. In this case, the angle (viewing angle) indicating a range of about 45 to 135 ° from the installation surface of the liquid crystal display toward the display direction is about 90 °, and even if the screen is viewed from either the left or right side, it is out of the viewing angle. It is not possible to see the information. Therefore, an automatic cash transaction apparatus in which such a peep prevention film is stuck on a touch panel has been installed in each financial institution store.
JP 2003-131202 A (paragraphs 0030 and 0033, FIG. 1)

  In recent years, in an automatic teller machine in which such a peep prevention film is pasted on a touch panel, depending on the environment in which the automatic teller machine is used even if the same peep prevention film is used, a peep prevention film Has been reported to work effectively and in some cases. In particular, it is known that the peep prevention film does not work effectively when the illuminance of the environment where the automatic teller machine is used becomes insufficient. This is because the display device having the peep prevention film attached to the screen displays information on the screen by limiting the viewing angle according to the ambient illuminance due to the characteristics of the peep prevention film. If the illuminance around the liquid crystal display is, for example, 500 lux, the screen looks black when viewed from the direction of about 45 ° sideways of the liquid crystal display. When you look at it, the screen may appear thin. In other words, the viewing angle is about 90 ° at 500 lux, for example, and the viewing angle is larger than 90 ° at 150 lux, for example. That is, if the illuminance around the screen is sufficiently high, a third party who cannot see the screen display may be able to visually recognize the screen display when the illuminance around the screen is low. Therefore, improvement measures to increase the lighting device by increasing the output of the lighting device arranged on the ceiling or wall of the existing dedicated booth where the automatic teller machine is installed conventionally or increasing the number of lighting devices (Hereinafter simply referred to as improvement measures). However, it is a heavy burden for installers of automatic teller machines such as financial institutions to increase lighting devices for improvement measures.

Moreover, the environment where an automatic teller machine is utilized is diversifying now unlike the past. For example, an automatic teller machine can be used as a branch office of each financial institution in a public facility such as a public office, a school, a hospital, a railway station, an airport, or a company in addition to a store (head office or branch) of each financial institution There is a dedicated booth. In addition, for example, stores (head offices, branches) of financial institutions in which automatic teller machines are installed have extended business hours in order to improve customer service. In addition, a dedicated booth (ATM corner) where an automatic teller machine is installed may be open for 24 hours. The automatic cash transaction apparatus is also installed in a 24-hour (or late-night) convenience store. Therefore, due to changes in the time zone in which the automatic teller machine is used, the electricity bill of the lighting device increased by the installer of the automatic teller machine for improvement measures is large for the installer and the manager of the place where it is installed. It is a burden. In addition, strengthening the lighting device as an improvement measure means an increase in energy supplied as electricity, and is linked to an increase in CO 2 emissions, so that an increase in energy consumed for the improvement measure is reduced. It is desirable to minimize it.

  Therefore, it is also conceivable to install the automatic teller machine in an environment where sufficient illuminance is always maintained so that the peep prevention film works effectively without increasing the lighting device. However, it is not realistic because the installation location of the automatic teller machine is limited. In addition, for example, when an existing store such as a convenience store is to introduce a cash automatic transaction apparatus, for example, it is arranged considering the position of an empty space, the position of an existing monitoring apparatus, etc. It is not always possible to install it in a place with good illuminance.

  Therefore, in the present invention, the above-described problem is solved, and even if the ambient illuminance is low, the information displayed on the screen is limited so that the information displayed on the screen cannot be viewed outside the predetermined viewing angle. It aims at providing the automatic teller machine which can do.

  The present invention was devised to achieve the above object, and the automatic teller machine according to claim 1 of the present invention is an input for inputting designation information for designating transaction contents by an operation of an operator. In an automatic teller machine having a device and a display device that displays the specified transaction content on a screen with a limited viewing angle, an illuminance sensor that measures the illuminance around the display device, and the display device A dimmable lighting device that illuminates a screen with illumination light, and a control device that performs dimming control on the lighting device so that the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor is equal to or greater than a predetermined threshold value. The predetermined threshold is a value of illuminance around the display device when information displayed on the screen of the display device cannot be viewed outside a predetermined viewing angle.

  According to such a configuration, the automatic teller machine illuminates the screen of the display device with the provided illumination device, so that even if the ambient illuminance is low, the automatic teller machine is displayed on the screen outside the predetermined viewing angle. The information can be displayed on the screen with the restriction that the information cannot be visually recognized.

  Moreover, the automatic teller machine according to claim 2 is the automatic teller machine according to claim 1, wherein the control device has an illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor smaller than the threshold value. Illuminance determining means for determining whether the measured illuminance value is smaller than the threshold value, and based on the determination result of the illuminance determining means, the illuminance value around the display device is the threshold value. And a lighting device control means for dimming the lighting device so as to have a value.

  According to such a configuration, the automatic teller machine has a predetermined threshold as the illuminance around the display device by changing the illuminance around the automatic teller machine depending on the place where the automatic teller machine is installed and the time zone used. Even if the correspondence between the value and the value of the control signal output to the lighting device changes, the control device does not change the illuminance measured by the illuminance sensor until the illuminance value around the display device becomes a threshold value. The value of the control signal output to the lighting device can be adjusted and output following the value. Therefore, in the automatic teller machine, the display device can display the transaction content by limiting the viewing angle within a predetermined range regardless of the change in the use environment.

  Moreover, the automatic teller machine according to claim 3 is the automatic teller machine according to claim 2, and at least the start and end of the transaction operation as the transaction contents designated by the designation information input from the input device. The lighting device control unit dims the lighting device before it is determined that the transaction operation has started. As a result, the illuminance value around the display device is When the threshold value is reached, the control signal value is stored in the storage means and the lighting device is turned off. When it is determined that the transaction operation is started, the control signal value is The value is adjusted to the value stored in the storage means and output to the lighting device, and when it is determined that the transaction operation is completed, the lighting device is controlled to be turned off.

  According to such a configuration, the automatic teller machine determines and stores the value of the control signal to be output to the lighting device by the lighting device control means of the control device before the transaction operation is started, and stores the test. After finishing, turn off the lighting equipment until the transaction operation starts. And an automatic teller machine outputs the value of the control signal calculated | required experimentally to lighting equipment by the lighting equipment control means only until transaction operation actually starts and is complete | finished. Therefore, since the lighting device of the automatic teller machine is operated only when the illuminance around the display device is lower than the threshold value and the transaction operation is being performed, the operating cost of the lighting device can be reduced.

  Moreover, the automatic teller machine according to claim 4 is the automatic teller machine according to claim 2, wherein at least the start and end of the transaction operation are specified as the transaction content specified by the specified information input from the input device. And an input operation determining means for determining the start and end of the password input operation, the lighting device control means dimming the lighting device before determining that the transaction operation has started When the illuminance value around the display device reaches the threshold value, the control signal value is stored in the storage means and the lighting device is turned off, and the password input operation is started. If it is determined, the control signal value is adjusted to the value stored in the storage means and output to the lighting device, and when it is determined that the password input operation has been completed, And performing control to turn off the vessel.

  According to such a configuration, the automatic teller machine determines and stores the value of the control signal to be output to the lighting device by the lighting device control means of the control device before the transaction operation is started, and stores the test. After finishing, turn off the lighting equipment until the password input operation starts. And an automatic teller machine outputs the value of the control signal calculated | required experimentally to the illuminating device only until the personal identification number input operation actually starts and ends by the illuminating device control means. Therefore, since the lighting device of the automatic teller machine is operated only when the illuminance around the display device is lower than the threshold value and the password input operation is being performed, the operating cost of the lighting device can be reduced.

  According to the present invention, even when the ambient illuminance is low, it is possible to display information on the screen by restricting the information displayed on the screen from being visually recognized outside a predetermined viewing angle.

  Hereinafter, the best mode (hereinafter referred to as “embodiment”) for carrying out an automatic teller machine of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings.

(First embodiment)
[Configuration of automatic teller machine]
FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing an appearance of an automatic teller machine according to an embodiment of the present invention. The automatic cash transaction apparatus 1 shown in FIG. 1 is comprised from ATM (Automated Teller Machine: Cash automatic teller machine). Hereinafter, it is simply expressed as ATM1. ATM1 is installed in ATM booth 100 of stores such as financial institutions. As shown in FIG. 1, the ATM 1 includes a touch panel 2, an illuminance sensor 3, a lighting device 4, and a control device 5. The ATM 1 also has general configurations such as a passbook entry / exit unit, a card entry / exit unit, a bill entry / exit unit, and a coin entry / exit unit. To do.

  The touch panel 2 is integrally provided with an input device 2a (see FIG. 2) and a display device 2b (see FIG. 2). The input device (touch panel) 2 a is configured to be capable of touch input, and inputs designation information for designating transaction contents to the control device 5 by an operation of the operator. In the present embodiment, the input device 2a is configured as a touch input device. However, for example, a button-type general input device may be provided outside the screen of the display device 2b.

  The display device (touch panel) 2b includes, for example, a transmissive liquid crystal display (LCD) having a backlight, and displays and outputs a transaction guide image. In the present embodiment, the display device 2b is configured as a touch panel configured integrally with the input device 2a, but is not limited thereto. Further, not only the LCD but also a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube), a PDP (Plasma Display Panel), or the like may be used.

  Hereinafter, the input device 2a and the display device 2b will be referred to as the touch panel 2 unless otherwise distinguished. The touch panel 2 enters a power saving mode indicating that the backlight is turned off when a predetermined time has passed without being touched. When the touch panel 2 is touched during the power saving mode, the backlight is turned on. The normal operation mode can be restored.

  In addition, a light shielding filter 6 is attached on the display device 2b (touch panel 2). The light blocking filter 6 is configured by a peeping prevention filter that displays information displayed on the touch panel 2 with a viewing angle limited according to ambient illuminance. For example, a commercially available peep prevention filter can be used as the light blocking filter 6. Moreover, the light shielding filter 6 should just have a size of the extent which covers the touch panel 2, and the thickness and shape can be selected suitably.

  The illuminance sensor 3 measures the illuminance around the display device 2b (touch panel 2). The illuminance sensor 3 is composed of an element whose resistance changes depending on ambient illuminance, for example, CdS. Note that the illuminance sensor 3 is not limited to the one using CdS, and may be composed of, for example, a phototransistor or a photodiode using silicon instead of cadmium sulfide. The illuminance sensor 3 is provided at an arbitrary position outside the screen of the touch panel 2 in the vicinity of the touch panel 2. In the present embodiment, the illuminance sensor 3 is provided, for example, at the center of the operator side (near side) at the outer edge of the screen of the touch panel 2 as shown in FIG.

  The illumination device 4 is a dimmable device that illuminates the screen of the display device 2b (touch panel 2) with illumination light, and includes, for example, a fluorescent lamp. The attachment position of the illumination device 4 is a position where the shadow of illumination does not appear on the screen when the operator (user) of the ATM 1 operates the operation screen. The lighting device 4 includes a cap 4a. The Casa 4a is attached at a position where the user of the ATM 1 does not look directly at the illumination light.

  The control device 5 controls the amount of light of the illumination device 4 so that the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor 3 is equal to or greater than a predetermined threshold value. This threshold value is predetermined as the illuminance around the display device 2b (touch panel 2) when the screen of the display device 2b (touch panel 2) is not visible outside the predetermined range determined by the characteristics of the light shielding filter 6. It is.

  Here, if the illuminance around the touch panel 2 is, for example, 150 lux or less, the shading filter 6 may not work effectively, and the display screen of the touch panel 2 may be reflected by the shading filter 6 and appear thin. The threshold needs to be greater than 150 lux. Further, when the illuminance around the touch panel 2 is, for example, 1000 lux, the user can visually recognize even if fine characters are displayed on the touch panel 2. However, since the input operation in ATM1 is premised on a user-friendly simple operation and a large character display, an illuminance around the touch panel 2 of about 500 lux is sufficient. Also from the characteristics of the light shielding filter 6, the light shielding filter 6 works effectively when the illuminance around the touch panel 2 is 500 lux. Therefore, in this embodiment, the threshold value is set to 500 lux. In addition, this threshold value can be suitably set, for example to 300-1000 lux according to the characteristic of the light shielding filter 6 stuck to the display apparatus 2b (touch panel 2).

[Configuration of control device]
FIG. 2 is a block diagram schematically showing the configuration of the control device shown in FIG.
The control device 5 includes, for example, a CPU (Central Processing Unit), a RAM (Random Access Memory), a ROM (Read Only Memory), an input / output interface, and the like, and is roughly divided into an input unit 10 and an output unit 20. And a storage unit 30 and a control unit 40.

  The input unit 10 includes, for example, an input interface, and inputs predetermined information. Specifically, the input unit 10 inputs designation information from the input device 2a (touch panel 2) to the control unit 40. The input unit 10 inputs the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor 3 to the control unit 40.

  The output unit 20 is configured by, for example, an output interface and the like, and outputs information from the control unit 40. Specifically, the output unit 20 outputs display information from the control unit 40 to the display device 2b (touch panel 2). Further, the output unit 20 outputs a control signal from the control unit 40 to the lighting device 4.

  The storage unit (storage unit) 30 includes, for example, a ROM, a RAM, and the like, stores a predetermined program, etc., is used for arithmetic processing by the control unit 40, and is acquired via the input unit 10. Store information and so on. In addition, the storage unit 30 stores in advance a predetermined threshold value “500 lux” used by the control unit 40. In addition, the storage unit 30 includes a memory (for example, a flash memory) that stores the value of the control signal of the lighting device 4.

  The control unit 40 includes, for example, a CPU or the like, and includes an input operation determination unit 41, a transaction control unit 42, an illuminance determination unit 43, and a lighting device control unit 44, as shown in FIG.

  The input operation discriminating means 41 discriminates the start and end of the transaction operation as the contents of the transaction operation designated by the designation information input from the input device 2a (touch panel 2). Specifically, the input operation determination unit 41 determines whether or not an operation button for designating a transaction such as deposit, withdrawal, transfer, transfer, balance inquiry or the like is pressed on the touch panel 2. In addition, the input operation determination means 41 includes buttons such as numeric keys and symbol keys for specifying the transaction amount, etc., and a confirmation button for confirming the input information as the transaction contents during each transaction on the touch panel 2. It is determined whether or not the button has been pressed. Further, the input operation determination unit 41 determines whether or not a numeric key or a symbol key is pressed on the personal identification number input operation screen for authenticating the user during each transaction on the touch panel 2. The determination result by the input operation determination unit 41 is output to the transaction control unit 42 and the lighting device control unit 44.

  The transaction control means 42, when it is determined by the input operation determination means 41 that an operation button for specifying a transaction such as deposit, withdrawal, transfer, transfer, balance inquiry is pressed, the specified transaction is programmed in advance. It is processed in the procedure procedure that was made. This transaction control means 42 displays a predetermined guide message for prompting an input operation on the touch panel 2, recognizes information input from the touch panel 2, and processes deposit / withdrawal of banknotes and coins and printing of a slip (receipt). Performs all processes related to transactions such as processing.

  For example, when the power is turned on, the illuminance determination unit 43 determines whether or not the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor 3 is smaller than a threshold value “500 lux” stored in the storage unit 30 in advance. It is. The discrimination result by the illuminance discrimination means 43 is output to the lighting equipment control means 44. Here, turning on the power means both when the ATM 1 is first activated and when the touch panel 2 of the ATM 1 is returned from the power saving mode to the normal operation mode.

  When the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor 3 is smaller than the threshold value, the illuminating equipment control means 44 determines the illuminance value around the display device (touch panel) 2b based on the determination result of the illuminance determination means 43. The value of the control signal is adjusted so as to be a threshold value and output to the lighting device 4. That is, the lighting device control means 44 follows the illuminance value measured by the illuminance sensor 3 until the illuminance value around the touch panel 2 reaches the threshold value, and the value of the control signal output to the lighting device 4 Adjust and output. Further, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the value of the control signal to “0” to the lighting device 4 when the input operation determination unit 41 determines that the transaction operation has ended. That is, when it is determined that the transaction operation has been completed, the lighting device control unit 44 turns off the lighting device 4 if the lighting device 4 is illuminating the touch panel 2.

  The input operation determination means 41, the transaction control means 42, the illuminance determination means 43, and the illumination device control means 44 described above function when the CPU expands and executes a predetermined program stored in the ROM or the like. Is realized.

[Operation of automatic teller machine]
The operation of the automatic teller machine (ATM) 1 according to the first embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. 3 (see FIGS. 1 and 2 as appropriate). FIG. 3 is a flowchart showing the operation of the automatic teller machine according to the first embodiment. Here, it is assumed that the control value of the lighting device 4 is set to “0” by the initial setting.

  When the power is turned on, the control device 5 uses the illuminance determination unit 43 to determine whether or not the illuminance value is greater than or equal to a threshold value (step S1). When the illuminance value is smaller than the threshold value (step S1: No), the control device 5 outputs a control value (a control signal having a predetermined value) to the illumination device 4 by the illumination device control means 44 (step S2). And the control apparatus 5 adjusts a control value so that the value of illumination intensity may become a threshold value by the illuminating device control means 44 (step S3). On the other hand, when the illuminance value is equal to or greater than the threshold value (step S1: Yes), the control device 5 causes the lighting device control means 44 to turn off the lighting device 4 (step S4). That is, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs a control signal having a control value “0” to the lighting device 4.

  And the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether transaction input operation started by the input operation determination means 41 (step S5). The input operation determination unit 41 repeats the determination until the transaction input operation starts (Step S5: No). When transaction input operation starts (step S5: Yes), the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether transaction input operation was complete | finished by the input operation determination means 41 (step S6). The input operation determination unit 41 repeats the determination until the transaction input operation is completed (step S6: No). During this time, the control device 5 performs processing related to the transaction business by the transaction control means 42 in parallel. And when transaction input operation is complete | finished (step S6: Yes), the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether there exists a next transaction continuously by the input operation discrimination means 41 (step S7). When there exists the next transaction (step S7: Yes), the control apparatus 5 returns to step S5. On the other hand, when there is no next transaction (step S7: No), the control apparatus 5 makes the lighting equipment 4 a light extinction state by the lighting equipment control means 44 (step S8). That is, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs a control signal having a control value “0” to the lighting device 4. The process ends here.

  According to the first embodiment, the ATM 1 is not affected by the installation environment or the usage environment of the ATM booth 100, and the illumination device 4 provided in the ATM 1 itself provides an illuminance that is equal to or higher than a predetermined threshold around the touch panel 2. It can be secured. Therefore, it can be expected that the light shielding property of the light shielding filter 6 is made constant. Further, even if the illuminance of the ATM booth 100 in which the ATM 1 is installed is so low that the light blocking action by the light blocking filter 6 cannot be effectively maintained, measures are taken to improve the surrounding environment so as to enhance lighting devices other than the ATM 1. There is no need. Accordingly, it is possible to suppress the economic burden for the ATM 1 installer and the manager of the installation location to implement the improvement measures, and it is possible to suppress energy consumption such as electric power. Furthermore, since ATM1 is equipped with the illuminating device 4, it can be installed universally in various places, such as a place without a window, a place surrounded by a wall, and a basement.

(Second Embodiment)
Since the automatic teller machine (ATM) according to the second embodiment has the same configuration as that of the automatic teller machine (ATM1) according to the first embodiment, the same reference numerals are given to the same components, and a detailed description is given. The drawings are omitted. However, when the lighting device control means 44 of the control device 5 controls the lighting device 4 before it is determined that the transaction operation has started, the illuminance value around the touch panel 2 becomes a threshold value. When the control signal value is stored in the storage unit 30 and the lighting device 4 is turned off and it is determined that the transaction operation has started, the control signal value is adjusted to the value stored in the storage unit 30. The lighting device 4 is output to the lighting device 4, and when it is determined that the transaction operation is finished, the lighting device 4 is turned off.

  The operation of the automatic teller machine according to the second embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. 4 (see FIGS. 1 and 2 as appropriate). FIG. 4 is a flowchart showing the operation of the automatic teller machine according to the second embodiment. Here, it is assumed that the control value of the lighting device 4 is set to “0” by the initial setting.

  When the power is turned on, the control device 5 uses the illuminance determination unit 43 to determine whether or not the illuminance value is greater than or equal to a threshold value (step S11). When the illuminance value is smaller than the threshold value (step S11: No), the control device 5 outputs a control value to the lighting device 4 by the lighting device control means 44 (step S12). And the control apparatus 5 memorize | stores the control value when the value of illumination intensity becomes a threshold value by the lighting equipment control means 44 (step S13), and performs control which turns off the lighting equipment 4 (step S4). On the other hand, when the illuminance value is greater than or equal to the threshold value (step S11: Yes), the control device 5 causes the lighting device control means 44 to turn off the lighting device 4 (step S15). That is, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs a control signal having a control value “0” to the lighting device 4. And the illuminating equipment control means 44 memorize | stores the present control value "0" (step S16).

  Then, following step S14 or step S16, the control device 5 determines whether or not the transaction input operation has been started by the input operation determination means 41 (step S17). The input operation determination means 41 repeats the determination until the transaction input operation starts (Step S17: No). And when transaction input operation starts (step S17: Yes), the control apparatus 5 outputs the memorize | stored control value to the illuminating device 4 by the illuminating device control means 44 (step S18). That is, if “Yes” in step S <b> 11, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the stored control value “0” to the lighting device 4. That is, the lighting device control means 44 keeps the lighting device 4 in a light-off state. On the other hand, if “No” in step S <b> 11, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the stored control value to the lighting device 4 to turn on the lighting device 4.

  And the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether transaction input operation was complete | finished by the input operation determination means 41 (step S19). The input operation determination unit 41 repeats the determination until the transaction input operation is completed (step S19: No). During this time, the control device 5 performs processing related to the transaction business by the transaction control means 42 in parallel. And when transaction input operation is complete | finished (step S19: Yes), the control apparatus 5 performs control which turns off the illuminating device 4 by the illuminating device control means 44 (step S20). And the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether there exists a next transaction continuously by the input operation discrimination means 41 (step S21). When there exists the next transaction (step S21: Yes), the control apparatus 5 returns to step S17. On the other hand, when there is no next transaction (step S21: No), the control apparatus 5 complete | finishes a process.

  According to the second embodiment, the ATM 1 can obtain the same effect as the first embodiment, and before the transaction input operation is performed when the illuminance value around the touch panel 2 is smaller than the predetermined threshold value. Since the lighting device 4 is turned on only during the transaction input operation after the lighting device 4 is turned on experimentally, energy consumption can be reduced.

(Third embodiment)
Since the automatic teller machine (ATM) according to the second embodiment has the same configuration as that of the automatic teller machine (ATM1) according to the first embodiment, the same reference numerals are given to the same components, and a detailed description is given. The drawings are omitted. However, as in the second embodiment, the lighting device control means 44 of the control device 5 controls the lighting device 4 before it is determined that the transaction operation has started. When the threshold value is reached, the control signal value is stored in the storage unit 30 and the lighting device 4 is turned off. Also, the illumination device control means 44 adjusts the value of the control signal to the value stored in the storage unit 30 when it is determined that the password input operation has started, as a difference from the second embodiment. In addition to outputting to the lighting device 4, when it is determined that the password input operation has been completed, the lighting device 4 is controlled to be turned off.

  The operation of the automatic teller machine according to the third embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. 5 (see FIGS. 1 and 2 as appropriate). FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the operation of the automatic teller machine according to the third embodiment. Here, it is assumed that the control value of the lighting device 4 is set to “0” by the initial setting.

  The processing of steps S31 to S36 executed by the control device 5 of the automatic teller machine according to the third embodiment is the processing of steps S11 to S16 executed by the control device 5 of the automatic teller machine according to the second embodiment (FIG. 4), the description is omitted.

  Then, following step S34 or step S36, the control device 5 determines the content of the transaction input operation by the input operation determination means 41 (step S37). When the content of the transaction input operation is “password input”, the control device 5 outputs the stored control value to the lighting device 4 by the lighting device control means 44 (step S38). That is, if “Yes” in step S <b> 31, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the stored control value “0” to the lighting device 4. That is, the lighting device control means 44 keeps the lighting device 4 in a light-off state. On the other hand, if “No” in step S <b> 31, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the stored control value to the lighting device 4 to turn on the lighting device 4.

  And the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether PIN code input operation was complete | finished by the input operation determination means 41 (step S39). The input operation determination unit 41 repeats the determination until the password input operation is completed (step S39: No). During this time, the control device 5 performs processing related to the transaction business by the transaction control means 42 in parallel. When the password input operation is completed (step S39: Yes), the control device 5 causes the lighting device control unit 44 to turn off the lighting device 4 (step S40). That is, the lighting device control unit 44 outputs the control value “0” to the lighting device 4.

  And the control apparatus 5 discriminate | determines whether transaction input operation was complete | finished by the input operation discrimination means 41 (step S41). When transaction input operation is not complete | finished (step S41: No), the control apparatus 5 returns to step S37. On the other hand, when transaction input operation is complete | finished (step S41: Yes), the control apparatus 5 complete | finishes a process. On the other hand, when the content of the transaction input operation is not “input password” in step S37, the control device 5 skips step S40 from step S38 and proceeds to step S41. However, while proceeding from step S37 to step S41, the control device 5 performs processing related to the transaction business by the transaction control means 42.

  According to the third embodiment, the ATM 1 can obtain the same effect as the first embodiment, and before the transaction input operation is performed when the illuminance value around the touch panel 2 is smaller than the predetermined threshold value. Since the lighting device 4 is turned on only during the password input operation after the lighting device 4 is turned on experimentally, energy consumption can be reduced as compared with the second embodiment.

  As mentioned above, although preferred embodiment of this invention was described, this invention is not limited to each above-described embodiment. For example, in the ATM 1 of each embodiment, the shading filter 6 is pasted on the display device 2b (touch panel 2) of the liquid crystal display, the viewing angle is limited within a predetermined range, and transaction contents and operation contents are displayed on the screen. Although described as a thing, it is not limited to this, Instead of using the shading filter 6, the automatic cash transaction using the liquid crystal panel with a viewing angle restriction provided with a function of restricting the viewing angle within a predetermined range The present invention can also be applied to a device. In this case, the threshold value can be appropriately set according to the characteristics of the liquid crystal panel with a viewing angle restriction.

  Moreover, in each embodiment, although demonstrated as what hold | maintains the illumination intensity around the touch panel 2 more than a threshold value with the illuminating device 4 provided outside the touch panel 2, it is not limited to this. For example, instead of dimming the lighting device 4, dimming of the backlight of the touch panel 2 (display device 2b) may be used. That is, if the ambient illuminance is less than or equal to the threshold value, the backlight may be dimmed to make it difficult to see from the surroundings. Further, the dimming of the backlight and the dimming of the lighting device 4 may be combined to prevent peeping on the screen.

  Further, each time the password number input operation screen is displayed, for example, by performing control to change the arrangement of the numeric keys “0” to “9”, the user's finger movement can be controlled. You may comprise so that the third party near a user may prevent the injustice which acquires a PIN code.

  In addition to the characteristics of the shading filter 6 and the liquid crystal panel with a viewing angle limit, the threshold value is determined by static conditions such as the color and material of the ceiling and wall of the ATM booth 100, the size of the window, and the type of illumination. You may correct | amend and correct | amend by dynamic conditions, such as a weather and time.
